Default Marble machines

I love good marble machines. This first one is nice, but he really needs a crank, and I would like to see all the metal rods replaced with wood dowels. But still, not bad.

Then there is this rather neat one-shooter.

Then a four-shooter, that I like more.
Quadrapult - YouTube
Then the eight-shooter, that I like the most of all.

Now Neville, be sure you make enough for everyone to have one.

Theo next year when I make them then you will be able to see a photo of one of them, I will make a short video and you can watch the balls go around but it may be beyond my ability to make a Marble machine for everyone. N
